“Any kind of dancing is better than no dancing at all.” Lynda Barr

I have spoken before about the benefits of dancing. I think now is a time to regularly dance to uplift your soul. There are however more scientific studies on the benefits of dancing for both physical and mental health. Dancing together, even if streamed apart, has the same mental health benefit as a hug. This article Why dancing is the best thing you can do for your body is worth a read.

Currently, when I do my youtube workouts, if they include an exercise that won't be good for my back, I just dance through it, rather than fast forward. I don't listen to the workout - I mute it and have my dance playlist running so am quite elated while doing the workout each morning.

Every second Saturday from 6-8, Hot Dub Time Machine is streaming live. Grab a cocktail, put on some party lights and pretend you're with the 40, 000 other people streaming it for #HotDubAtHome. Catch past shows here.

Play all the #FurnaceatHome clips together for a good 20 mins of dancing. There are 4 so far...but this one is my fav, because of Dolly.


I'm very excited because Duke Dumont is streaming live this afternoon, so I'll be dancing again from 4pm. Sign up to Bands in Town, track all your favs. A lot of people are doing concerts almost weekly - and all different types of Musicians. Jon Cleary is doing a tour (so basically the start time is 8pm in different timezones around the States). 

Grab some new grooves with #SundayCovers.

There are also free dance lessons you can join in, so pick your type of dance and get googling. Who knows, you may find a new hobby for you by the end of this.

If you're feeling a little low, the quickest way to lift your mood is to get moving in joyous exercise. 

Do you have tips to get your groove on?

  1. I couldn't agree more - I love a little dance around the kitchen. Especially if I am being silly with my daughter. Perhaps the benefits of dance is the reason the whole TikTok phenomenon has really kicked off during lockdown? #DreamTeamLinky

  2. Funny you should mention dancing because that's how two characters on one of my fav TV shows (Zoe's Extraordinary Playlist) resolved their issues last night. And every Saturday here in WI everyone turns their radios up loud to "Jump Around" at 3:00. I'm not great at jumping so I dance around.

  7. I used to love dancing but feel quite self conscious about doing it at home. I also listen to a lot less music than I used to and have no idea what is in the charts right now! Thanks for linking up with #dreamteamlinky
